Spur Gastropub - Seattle

Billy Bob Apr 14, 2009 08:49 PM

Hounds,

As I mentioned in a few other posts, I made my maiden voyage to Spur last night for happy hour and enjoyed myself immensely. Food was excellent, as I tried all three happy hour appetizers, Red Potatoes, Celeriac Soup and a Mizuna salad. With a smooth Georgetown Porter to go with it and everything priced at $3 bucks, I had a great $12 mini meal.

I can't wait to go back and try the full menu.

    I was actually very dissappointed in Spur. I had heard such good things about it. I wonder if it's because I didn't go for HH? I was a little surprised at how much my bill came to, considering I didn't leave stuffed!

    Regarding the food, all the descriptions sounded fantastic but didn't live up to them. We did try the bison burger and I thought it too be WAY oversmoked. It was like eating a bbq. My sister couldn't finish her half. Cheese plate was also sad - 3 tiny wedges, no variety (all 3 hard cheeses).

    Service and drinks were good though.

      Sounds like maybe consistency is a problem, since other people have raved about that very same burger, or possibly it is just personal preference.

      Our burger of the month group just went there last night. I've been many times before but this is the first time I tried their bison burger - it is fantastic - it rivals Quinn's and Palace Kitchen for the best burger in the city.

      They also have a baby artichoke salad now - also fantastic.

        Can't agree more - I heart Spur. I think these guys are really creative with the food, and the handcrafted bitters and talented bartenders make for a really nice evening. The housemade marscapone/salmon plate is divine.

          I think their burger rocks as well, I had it with a bunch of other tasty things last time I was there. Love their cocktails too!
